Just learned of the 'bullet-resistant' backpack from MJ Safety Solutions. The product's makers claim the backpack offers protection from gun and knife attacks. The $195 backpack--which includes a padded laptop compartment--was created to protect students in the post-Columbine era.
I find this product ingenious and exploitative, comforting and discomforting, all at the same time. Take a look at the company's YouTube video below. What's your opinion of this product?
